Dear Students:

I am pleased to welcome you to Coastline College. Thank you for choosing us as your education partner for pursuing your A.A./A.S., transfer degree, associate degree, career/technical certificate, or attainment of basic skills for college readiness. You have made an excellent choice!

Investing in a college education is still the smartest investment you can make. Research consistently shows that college graduates earn more than those with high school diplomas—as much as 40% more over the course of their lifetime. Degree earners also find more job opportunities open to them and tend to be happier with their careers. If that sounds like the future you want, you’ve definitely come to the right place.

As a fully accredited college, Coastline provides affordable, accessible, and high quality education at three beautiful campuses in Orange County (Garden Grove, Newport Beach, and Westminster), as well as convenient, online courses and degrees you can take right from your home, wherever you live. As well, we have caring faculty and support staff who are dedicated and focused on your success and will guide and support you through your educational journey.

Since we started in 1976, our focus has been on helping YOU, the student, achieve your academic and career goals. Whether your goal is to earn your Associate degree and transfer to a university or to complete a certificate to improve your career opportunities, Coastline is here to help YOU succeed. You can count on first-class student support services and programs, low student-faculty ratio, high caliber faculty, and academic excellence.

Coastline is continuing to strengthen and expand academic degree and transfer programs, as well as Career/Technical Education, and Basic Skills programs—both on-site and online. The STAR program assists students in pursuing an accelerated degree or transfer to a four-year university through a structured pathway. Career and technical programs are designed to meet the current, emerging, and future needs of business in terms of employees’ knowledge and skills.

If your goal is to attain a degree, prepare for transfer, get a new job, or advance in your chosen career, Coastline is your college.

I urge you to take advantage of the comprehensive array of support services that are available to you at Coastline. A great “first stop” would be meeting with one of our caring and dedicated counselors who will help get you on the pathway to your long-term career goals.

We want you to make sure you have the best academic experience while at Coastline. We look forward to serving you.
